A new era in tea
 (голосов: 0)
By this date Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, had joined the ranks of tea producers, thanks largely to the coffee crop failing in the 1860s. By the early 1870s, India and Ceylon were jointly acknowledged as the Empire tea growers. China never resumed her preeminence after the Opium Wars, and Chinese tea became the choice of specialist tea drinkers which could only be bought in Fortnum & Mason and other specialist grocers.
